Lowe & Sons reopening – A grand return

Lowe & Sons, Chester’s oldest jewellers, almost closed its doors for good earlier this year after the lease on the store it occupied ran out. However, in a remarkable turn of events the 248-year old business was saved by its local competitor Powell’s Fine Jewellery, who bought the business, the name and even rehired original staff members

“It’s part of the local heritage, and when we closed down I was getting phone calls from Australia, America and France, from clients whose families have been dealing with us for over 100 years,” says Kevin Parry, the newly reinstated part-time manager of the recently reopened Lowe & Sons jewellery store in Chester. “When they originally heard the store was going to close they couldn’t believe it.”
